    Never ever ever (did I say ever?) give Aaron Rogers any amount of time to drive down the field. He has shown time and again that he is a magician when it comes to the clock.

    And this is coming from a die hard Bears fan. We, more than any other team, know how awesome of a player he is.

    I agree. That was one hell of a risky move. It wound up working out for them in the end, but I agree that it was pretty stupid.

    I'm still in shock. I hardly slept at all last night.

    That. Was. Insane.

    I hardly slept last night. What a night!

    This is it. The Cubs have fought back from a 3-1 deficit to tie the series and force a game seven in Cleveland. It's been just over thirty years since the last team who was down 3-1 in the World Series ended up winning, but I can't help but believe (or should I say pray) that the Cubbies will be able to do just that tonight.

    Both teams will have dominant starting pitchers on the mound with Kluber getting the nod for Cleveland and Hendricks taking the field for the Cubs. All eyes will be on Kluber to see if he is able to be on top of his game considering this is his third start in the seven game series. This is only Hendricks second start and he has had four full days of rest since his 1-0 loss last Friday.

    Whoever wins tonight will break a decades (or century plus) long streak of failing to win the World Series. My hope of all hopes is that the Cubs will be that team.

    It's hard to put into words how exciting this is for Cubs fans. My dad was born ten years after the Cubs last World Series appearance. My long since deceased great grandpa was two years old the last time the Cubs won the World Series in 1908.

    This is quite the exciting time, but any real Cubs fan won't get too excited until the final pitch is thrown and we have won.

    As a die hard Cubs fan I refuse to get too excited, but their comeback win against the Giants in game 4 was out of this world. Down by three in the 9th and scoring four runs for the win?! That was insane.

    On to the NLCS.

    The NBA announced it will be hosting the 2017 All-Star game in another state over their concerns with North Carolina's controversial "Bathroom Law."

    The league released a statement that read in part:

    "Our week-long schedule of All-Star events and activities is intended to be a global celebration of basketball, our league, and the values for which we stand, and to bring together all members of the NBA community - current and former players, league and team officials, business partners, and fans. While we recognize that the NBA cannot choose the law in every city, state, and country in which we do business, we do not believe we can successfully host our All-Star festivities in Charlotte in the climate created by HB2."

    I am loathe to express my personal political opinions on sports websites, but I applaud the NBA for taking a stand on this issue. It does appear officials from the NBA tried to work with officials from North Carolina to come up with a compromise, but they just weren't able to do so.

    Current and former NBA players seem to be avoiding stating their opinions on record like they would the plague. That might be because this is an extremely tricky subject and many in the media are just waiting to pounce on a player who expresses their political opinions.

    Thank goodness I'm not a basketball star because I have no problem praising the NBA for standing up for all Americans regardless of their sexual orientation.

    I know it's only a month into the season, but the two best teams in the MLB right now are my beloved Cubs and my hated White Sox. The only think that gets me excited about the White Sox fast start is the potential for the first ever "L Train" World Series in Chicago. If that were to happen then this city will erupt.

    The Cubs were already the heavy favorite going into this year and their first month has definitely lived up to that expectation. Jake Arrieta is 4-0 with a no hitter to boot. Anthony Rizzo has 8 home runs and 22 RBI's in that same time frame. And the rest of the team seems to have little problem moving on from the loss of Kyle Schwarber for the season. I have to admit that I'm not nearly as up to date with White Sox stats, but they are obviously having one hell of a start this year.

    Anything can happen in the long MLB season, but if these two teams continue to dominate their respective leagues then we'll be having a repeat of 2000, but this time it will be in Chicago and not New York City.

    That was one of the craziest hole in one's I've ever seen.

    What's even crazier is that three people aced the same hole one the same day for the first time ever at the Masters. Instead of the usual car given as a prize, they all get a crystal ball commemorating their feat.
